Namdaemun Market (남대문시장)

By Farah - Monday, September 17, 2018

Went to Namdaemun Market (남대문시장) once with my junior as he wanted to buy something here. I wasn't prepared to go to Namdaemun Market at that time so I was heavily overwhelmed by the busyness of Namdaemun Market. It also didn't help as we got lost here for quite some time, trying to find our starting point.

The only picture of Namdaemun Market that I have.

Once we found the starting point, we decided that it was best for us to leave as Namdaemun Market really sucked the energy out of me and we were in a rush to go to Itaewon for his grocery shopping and our dinner. I think we barely spent 3 hours here with 1 hour-ish was us being lost in a sea of humans.

Unfortunately, yes, I didn't get to properly explore Namdaemun Market and find the souvenir shops that are always being mentioned by other Malaysians. Hopefully, I can go and and properly explore Namdaemun Market in the future.

    1. Based on my readings, memang macam orang Malaysia selalu sangat datang sini. Masa kitaorang jalan-jalan dekat market ni, ramai je vendors cakap,"Malaysia? Malaysia? Malaysia?"

    1. Susah juga kan bila sejuk sangat ni. Tak selesa juga nak shopping. Saya kalau ada peluang pun mungkin nak pergi Namdaemun Market ni lagi. Tapi kena bersedia mentally la. Kalau tak, mahu menangis. Lagi satu, saya teringin nak ke satu alley dekat Namdaemun Market ni.

  7. I also didn't get to enjoy much when I got there. Time constraints and a sea of people stops me from really enjoying the moments. But I think I went thorough every part of it though.
